Greek Life at Daemen
Greek Life is thriving on Daemen's small, close-knit campus! Joining a fraternity or sorority at Daemen means becoming a part of a diverse network of students and alumni with a common purpose and incredible bond. Currently, we have three sororities and one fraternity represented on campus. All Greek Life members are also a part of the Inter-Greek Alliance (IGA) which serves as the official representative and governing body for recognized Greek Organizations.
All Daemen University Greek chapters are local chapters. Daemen chapters host informal and formal recruitment events at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. Bids are extended to potential members at the end of Rush Week.
